4 reasons why I love the handmade market

Reason #1

A shopping event in a winery means there is plenty of good Niagara wine available. Paired with fresh baked goods, tacos, wood-fired pizza and freshly shucked oysters, there is no other market quite like this one!

Reason #2

I’m always amazed by the ton of talent that I am surrounded by at this event. This year I was neighbours with Leslie of The Wandering Locavore and Tara of On a Branch soaps. I love discovering the talents of other vendors and shows like this one brings together such wonderful artists.

Reason #3

The customers in the Niagara region love handmade and really support their local communities. It’s wonderful to meet my customers face-to-face at markets like this one. I have the opportunity to try out new products and directly see the reaction when I launched my new Knit Kits concept for the first time at time this past weekend. Hearing and seeing customer reactions helps me to stay inspired and motivated to keep pursuing this dream.

Reason #4

This show is the start of a very busy Fall and Winter season for me. I have grand plans to take my craft in some new directions this season. I’m excited for the journey to come. I hope you will be, too!

My next show will be the Etsy Made in Canada Toronto pop-up on September 27th. See the event details for information and see you there!
